I may have figured out what Chaudary is up to!

General Sun Tzu is attributed with saying of tactics and strategy – “you may perceive my tactics, but my strategy remains hidden”.  Looking at Chodo’s tactics to date, a pattern emerges.  We can conclude what were his original aims, and what is his ‘end game’ strategy. 


1. Actions to Date – Team up with FB.  FB stage military coup.  Form interim govt with FB.  Take over judiciary. 

Problems – Pressure from international community for new elections under current Constitution.  Media scrutiny.  Public unrest.  International sanctions.  Disease outbreaks. 


2. Response Plan – NCBBF & Charter.  Reform GCC, industry, labour, civil service.  Delay next elections.  PR status for ex-citizens.  Civilian deaths to quell public unrest.

Problems – Media scrutiny.  Increased cost of oil, food , medicines.  Natural disasters.  Inflation.  Continued aid sanctions.  Victor Lal & Haryana funds story.  Military budget overspend.


3. Response plan – ‘Fix’ Haryana & tax inquiry.  Seek assistance from new donors (China, Korea, India, Singapore, Dubai).  Source loans & other revenue sources.  Deport foreign journalists.  Clampdown on local media.  Clampdown on active resistance to Charter.  Deny delaying next elections.  Delay next elections. 

Problems – Stagflation & economy in freefall.  Haryana donors upset.  Capital flight.  Continued international pressure for election timetable & Constitution.  Ministers bickering.  Media biased.  Charter not accepted by provinces or Chiefs.  Running out of time to ‘fix’ next election.


4. Response plan – Continue like nothing’s wrong.  Keep blaming LQ and the media.  Alter electoral boundaries.  Pressure and distract local media to reduce bias. 


At this point, two possible scenarios emerge to explain Chodo’s overlying strategy. 


Scenario 1 is that he wanted to be PM again, but he realises he has made a hash of it and his plans to revive the economy have failed miserably.  He knows his regime cannot survive a cyclone or outbreak of disease. He will be desperately trying to realise his original vision while simultaneously working on his ‘exit strategy’.  He has his millions squeezed away in Australia and NZ, but he knows that a legally elected govt (not his) will request those assets be frozen and surrendered unto the State.  He would rather reclaim them and abscond.  In this scenario, Chodo is vulnerable to being manipulated.  Because of Chodo’s self-appointed position, the entire country is vulnerable along with him.  


In Scenario 1, Chodo is all tactics and no strategy – wallowing in what Sun Tzu called “the noise of defeat”. 


Scenario 2 is that the situation is approximately as he intended.  In this case, all that has happened to date serves the purpose of a ‘final strategy’ and, in the final months before new elections, Chodo is, to use a chess analogy, putting the final pieces in to play. 


Chodo has an established attraction to Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction (the necessary stage prior to reincarnation).  He would often pose before her statue for local TV interviews in his private office.  Is it possible that Chodo seeks to invoke total destruction on Fiji, in order to rebuild it ‘in his own image’, according to his own vision? Why would Chodo think that this ‘final solution’ will succeed in the modern world?   Possibly the tenacity of corrupt regimes in Burma, Zimbabwe, Kashmir, and the on-going destruction in Palestine give Chodo hope that he might, just might, get away with it.


5. Current problems – Electorate hates the IG.  Victor Lal keeps reporting on the Haryana money.  No support on the proposal for PR for former residents.  Too much scrutiny on electoral procedures.


If Scenario 1 is the case, we can predict the following:-


5a. Scenario 1 response plan – Continue like nothing’s wrong.  Return to India and get more Haryana sympathy and money.  Transfer money in Australia & NZ to a neutral bank.  Continue to arrange new elections as promised.  Arrange immunity for IG members.  Stand in next elections.  If forbidden to stand, go into exile with Haryana money until it’s possible to stand again or support son’s campaign. 


If Scenario 2 is the case, we can predict the following:-


5b. Response plan – Continue like nothing’s wrong.  Return to India and get more Haryana sympathy, money and resources.  Change electoral boundaries and procedures in own favour.  If lose in next elections, use Haryana resources to fund outright takeover.  Return to power.  Reform land.  Power to indo-fijians forever, including option for indo-Fijian President.  Repay soft loans.  Open ‘little india’ for business.  Economy back on track.  Sugar No 1 national industry. 


So Chodo’s either realised the game is up and is going to try for immunity.  Or after years of meticulous planning, he is going for a ‘final solution’ to totally break Fiji and reshape it to his vision. 


Matthew 7:16 says “By their fruits you shall know them.  Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?”  Chodo’s illegal interim regime – for it is truly his junta and not Voreqe’s – has shown, by its fruits, that it is an undemocratic, corrupt, self-interested, shady dictatorship, despite initial claims to promote accountability and root out corruption. 


Chodo knows he cannot win an election in Fiji under the current Constitution.  But rather than seeing this as a result of his own actions and divisiveness, he blames it on the Constitution.  He knows he can win if he fixes the result.  But when he loses in the polls, as he surely shall, is he prepared to stage yet another coup, backed by Indian money, guns and possibly even soldiers?  Scenario 2 suggests the answer is ‘yes’. 


Looking at Chodo’s path and tactics to date, we may conclude that his final solution is to rule Fiji, no matter what.  He wants his legacy to be Indian rule in Fiji.  This will be obvious to anyone who’s watched him closely for the past decades.  What is surprising though, is the lengths he is prepared to go for it, flying in the face of reason, public opinion, legal legitimacy, human rights, ethical standards and decency. 


So which Chodo are we dealing with here?  Scenario 1 Chodo recognises rules and boundaries, even though he knows he cannot win.  Scenario 2 Chodo no longer recognises boundaries to his behaviour and is, I think, the more alarming of the two because the inability to respond to boundaries is a mark of insanity.  Just how desperate is he to reach his target? What isn’t Chodo prepared to sacrifice? 


Before the 2006 coup, Fiji’s future was bright, prosperous and bountiful.  We were achieving sustainable economic growth, were attracting investment and even shrugging off the impacts of repeated coup-de-tats.  The entire population, every man, women and child of Fiji, is being deprived of that future by the whims of one man whose motives are thoroughly questionable. 


We must do all we can to stop him.  We must show the world our dissent.  We must protest this travesty.  We, the true sons and daughters of this great land, must stop Fiji’s future being sacrificed on the altar of Chodo’s vanity. 


Tabu soro


God bless Fiji

    CHodo’s in deep water so far … like that saying in shakespeare..”my hands are in blood so far, & returning was as tedious as going over..”. He has waded into deep water and in the middle of the river .. & turning back is just as tiring as going over…so he will chose to go over. Believe, he will go all out to ghet his schemes done now…and change the phase of Fiji forever. He knows he has no second chance…he will do it now and if they are so dependednt on the Charter for their protection, than forget about fair elections in 2009 as they will use all devious means to control the results so that the required majority in Parliament is achieved to include the charter in the constitution. If that is not likely than perhaps,the miliatry couold be used as a force to intimidate the government to pass it..etc.He is out to beak Fiji and eliminate its Fijian character..as you’ve said it.. forever.

  2. Linus Says:

    I certainly agree with your bottom line argument that Chods is totally determined to turn Fiji into “Little India” .
    To preserve the Fijian identity; HE MUST BE STOPPED

  3. kaiviti Says:

    Chaudary is an evil man plotting this stragedy years in advance just like Al-qaeda. He is demanding his pound of flesh for all things which were done to him in 2 coup 1987 & 2000.
    Just like Oqori said Remember Shylock in Merchant of Venice……Chodo you can have your pound of flesh…but remember not a single drop of blood!!!!!!!!!!.
    The solution to all of this…. a bullet in his head…period…

    Spot on, Fiji Girl!

    Before 2006 —- that is, before the illegal overthrow of the Qarase-led SDL government — there indeed was economic GROWTH and public CONFIDENCE.

    It was basically Chodo who was pushing for this overthrow of Qarase….

    supported of course by Ganilau and Nalitikau – who were both sacked by Qarase from their respective duties as chairman of the GCC and speaker of the House.

  7. EnufDictatorship Says:

    Vinaka FijiGal…To add-on to your thought of…\”The entire population, every man, women and child of Fiji, is being deprived of that future by the whims of one man whose motives are thoroughly questionable\”….maybe because this man is currently operating on this year level below?…vacava?

    The Two-year old Illegal “Leader” Amongst Us

    History has been created in the South Pacific. The once paradise island of Fiji has been dragged to its knees by unfortunate events.

    These unfortunate events came upon this once-upon-a-time-island-paradise, in the form of a Two-year old persona, who claims to be their “leader.” This persona goes by the name Voreqe What’s-his-name.

    Educational psychologists have scoured their resources to try and determine what developmental level besieges this so-called illegal leader and have found out that he is currently working as a Two-year old. The following will give you a much clearer picture of what this entails. Read for yourself and decide whether you agree or not.

    Two-year-olds like to be independent! Favorite words are \”Mine\” and \”No\” and \”I do it!\”

    Emotions take on a roller coaster-like quality as 2-year-olds can go from excitement to anger to laughter within a few moments.

    A great deal of time is spent exploring, pushing, pulling, filling, dumping, and touching.

    Two-year-olds are surer of themselves and of what they can do as they grow. You may find them trying out new ideas and exploring their surroundings.

    Two-year-olds are usually interested in other children.
    However, social interest and physical abilities sometimes collide as a hug becomes a tackle and a gentle pat becomes a whack.

    Need to be taught how to express affection appropriately.


    * enjoys simple stories, rhymes, and songs
    * uses 2-3 word sentences
    * repeats words


    * plays alongside others more than with them
    * easily frustrated
    * insists on trying to do several tasks without help
    * very possessive – offers toys to other children but then wants them back
    * needs considerable time to change activities
    * capable of frequent tantrums, which are often a result of his inability to express himself even though he has ideas
    * can show aggressive behavior and the intent to hurt others
    * can be extremely demanding and persistent
    * destructive to objects around him when frustrated and angry
    * show feelings of jealousy
    * has fears and nightmares
    * cannot sit still or play with a toy for more than a few minutes


    * experiments…
    * likes to push, pull, fill, and dump
    * walks backwards


    * Baby-proof your house again.

    Question to ponder: How can we “Baby-proof” our country from Two-year old ADULT kinds (EGOMANIACS, OPPOTUNISTS, THIEVES, MURDERERS, ETC) who live amongst us and want to become our saviours when we didn’t ask them to?


  8. Adi Kaila Says:

    Well Done FijiGirl – Bravo Bravo.

    It’s true about chaudry prasad saheb – he wants to rebuild Fiji in his own image which is a very myopic one because voreqe has tasted power and the priviledges it affords and there is no way this ignoramus is going to give it up without spilling the beans. Kila ga na coward, cowards way out.

    One of them will eventually give the other one up as they are totally self absorbed and it seems bloodywell insane. lave ganilau has already stated that chaudry prasad saheb is the manipusi lawakica pulling the strings.

    You asked a very interesting question FG

    “What isn’t Chodo prepared to sacrifice?”

    His son rajendra? Like father like son.

    chaudry prasad saheb has paved the way for the destruction of his lifeline – his own baba rajendra. He’s done it all on his own and he can’t blame anyone else but himself. Some people just can’t see or tell when they have enough so they set about a course of self destruction that has enormous ramifications to their very own family. Laivi koya me selfdestruct – kali has only has four arms and she has used them all to save him.

    No more lifelines….

  9. Taukei Says:

    Exactly, Adi –

    chaudry prasad!

    His father’s FIRST name was “Chaudhry”, not surname.

    His LAST name was Prasad!

    He would like us to believe that he is a member of a land-owning caste from Haryana when in actual fact he is just another stupid “girmitya” out to destroy Fijian land, people and economy.

  10. IslandBoy Says:

    @FijiGirl – great progression and logic, I can see the possibilites of the scenarios you propose.

    Thus this question – do you think it is at all possible that part of their exit stratey includes travelling on Indian passports, meaning passports legally issued by the Indian Government?

    Is that at all possible? And if not India, perhaps some other country?

    Apologies if this sounds too far fetched.

  11. aubatinuku-N Says:

    @ IB – Who is to say Mahendra Chaudhary does not already have an Indian issued passport. This guy is such a snake, anythings possible.

    He is so buddy buddies with India and it’s his motherland anyway, good point you raise!

  12. Striker Says:

    He may think he’s winning, but its all falling apart; what a bad joke. Pity is the poverty and suffering!

  13. Senikau Says:

    I know Mahen did not see that LOVO that was prepared for him in Parliament House during the 2000 Coup.

    The way this fool has been acting up, he is putting himself and that FISHERMAN FROM KIUVA into another similar lovo pit when chaos comes around. I’m sure that they have not consider the retaliation from the grassroot people.

  14. FijiGirl Says:

    Bula IB. In Scenario 1, if the illegal regime goes into exile, it would not surprise me in the least if Chodo arranged for them to all get Indian passports. Their travel bans would still apply in Australia, NZ, US, etc no matter what passports they hold, until such time as those governments saw fit to reinstate their entry permissions.

    But I don’t think Chodo and his puppets are going for Scenario 1. I think he’s got his eye on Scenario 2. Bring Fiji to its knees, economically. Destroy tourism. Make Sugar the number 1 industry (doesn’t it make you want to cripple sugar, just to spite him?). Make EN or EG the President. Get them to change the law so that an IndoFijian can be President. Then he’d probably have them murdered on a trip to India. Then either he or his rancid son will position themselves to take over.

    Does that sound too far fetched? I wish it were impossible. But with each day that passes, Chodo-thru$h shows how low he is willing to go. I agree with Adi Kaila. At this point it appears the only thing he is not willing to sacrifice is that revolting son of his.

    (You may ask why do I call him ‘thrush” – because he’s an irritating c**t).

    God bless Fiji

  15. IslandBoy Says:

    @FijiGirl – proposed new spelling ” Chodokant ” for your consideration.
    BTW “rancid son” is a perfect description of the little snake.

    @aubatinuku-N. as FijiGirl concurs you are probably very right. It just never occurs to me to do something illegal as a first option, guess I’ll never be Minister of Finance.

  16. Adi Kaila Says:

    Hi IB –

    You’re right you know, those of us who mind our own business and lead normal lives not coveting what others have are always the happiest in the end. We may not get the ‘top’ jobs because we don’t tabetabe or are willing to indulge in creative accounting or business practises but a clean conscious is worth all the money on earth.

    I have my own business so I don’t report to anyone – been there done that – but man the workplace can be a real den of thieves. I’ve witnessed it overseas and here too. Sa rauti au vinaka.

    Go forth and hold your intelligent head up high – you deserve it.

    The tide is turning – piggys been whinging like hell of late.

  17. FijiGirl Says:

    Envoy condemns sacrilege
    Fiji Times Online Tuesday, May 13, 2008
    Update: 5:10PM
    Sacrilege acts on places of worship and arson should be strongly condemned, says Indian High Commissioner Professor Prabhakara Jha.

    And he believes that any act of arson is similar to sacrilege and it should be condemned too.

    Reacting to the two incidents in Lautoka in the weekend where a temple was torched and a house was burnt down in what was believed to be arson, Professor Jha said it was unbelievable and should be condemned.

    Professor Jha, who was in Lautoka yesterday and visited both the places, said he was disturbed that there were people in the community who could do those things.

    What’s the best this act was committed by one of Vore’s soldiers, instructed by Chodokant (vinaka IB! () ) with the specific aim of inciting divisions along racial lines?!

    Chodo knows the IndoFijian community is still furious with him for the Haryana millions.
    He wants to distract them from their rage by framing the taukei for arson.
    Make them think they are under attack (control them by fear) and they will want him as their leader.
    Well it won’t work, Chodothru$h.
    You can’t fool all of the people all of the time.
    You divisive, covetous little sh*t. FF.

    God bless Fiji

  18. natewaprince Says:

    FijiGirl,You’re are quite true.That temple burning could have been done by the same qauri goons who burned the judge’s house in Deuba,smashed the vehicle in Tevita Fa’s compound,damaged the vehicles in Mesake Koroi’s yard,kidnapped Kolinio Meo’s grandson etc.

    First they were on a mission of intimidation,now they are out to lay blame on the racial hatred of Fijians towards Indians in an attempt to justify the pigs charter.

    You can’t put anything past these bastards.Sa laurai levu tu na ka dou cakava tiko dou vei tauri.

  19. FijiGirl Says:

    Vinaka NP. It is interesting, don’t you think, that these incidents are happening thick and fast SINCE Chodokant has returned from India??

    Subtlety was never Chodo’s strength. FF.

    God bless Fiji

  20. natewaprince Says:

    Yeah,especially when the cock is ticking.

  21. IslandBoy Says:

    @FijiGirl – Do you have any contacts that could investigate where the Chinese $250M is being held and how its administered?

    @Adi-K – funny you should mention being in business. Close relative just told me the fashion label launched by the Ganilau’s daughter is being rubbished in Apia and Rarotonga as copies of originals done there.

    This girl and her husband used to be flat broke in Nadi, where did she get the money to start the label? She has beeen caught stealing a couple of times, it seems like she is still at it, except now its intellectual property.

  22. Budhau Says:

    FijiGirl – that conspiracy – about having them guys murdered in India and Chaudary and his son can become the PM and President – where do you come up with these ….. I think we should not rule out Elvis for president…. and Chaudary with a Indian passport…why would he want a Indian passport, I thought they sent him money so he can get a Australian passport….BTW what passport does that Cakobau girl have…you know…the one in the running for the Vunivalu title…did she ever get her Fijian passport back

    You guys got some great imagination.

    ..and those new names for Chaudary and his son… very creative – keep up the good work.

  23. aubatinuku-N Says:

    Welcome back Budhau, it’s very obvious you missed everyone! Heck you even missed yourself!!

  24. FijiGirl Says:

    @ IB – I can try, but alot of my cousins in the public service are finding the workplace less ‘informative’ these days. Hardly the signs of an accountable govt!
    If your contacts find out anything, let us know.

    BTW – does Chodo envisage himself as being “The New Cheddi Jagan”?

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    • Cheddi Berret Jagan, President of Guyana •
    In office 09 October 1992 – 06 March 1997( Prime Minister, Sam Hinds)
    Preceded by Desmond Hoyte, Succeeded by Sam Hinds
    Born 22 March 1918, Georgetown, Guyana
    Died 6 March 1997 (aged 78) Washington, DC, United States
    Political party PPP
    Spouse Janet Jagan
    Religion Hindu
    Cheddi Berret Jagan (March 22, 1918 – March 6, 1997) was a Guyanese politician who was Chief Minister of British Guiana from 1961 to 1964, prior to independence, and later President of Guyana from 1992 to 1997.[1]
    The son of ethnic Indian sugar plantation workers, Jagan managed to attend Queen’s College in Georgetown. He later studied at the Howard University Dental School in Washington, D.C., and Northwestern University in Chicago before returning home in the early 1940s.
    He was elected to the colonial legislative body, the Legislative Council, in November 1947 as an independent candidate from Central Demerara constituency. On January 1, 1950, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) was founded, with Jagan as its Leader, Forbes Burnham as its Chairman and Jagan’s wife Janet as its Secretary.[2]
    Jagan won in a colonially administered election in 1953, but was removed from power militarily by Britain which, under strong behind-the-scenes pressure from the United States and the CIA, asserted that he had ties to the Soviet Union.[3] Jagan resigned as British Guiana prime minister after 133 days. Britain suspended the constitution and chose an interim government. Jagan’s movements were restricted to Georgetown from 1954 to 1957.
    After a PPP victory in the August 1957 election, Jagan became Chief Minister for a second time, serving for seven years. In the December 1964 election, the PPP won a plurality of votes, but Burnham’s party, the People’s National Congress, and the conservative United Force were nevertheless invited to form the government.[2]
    Having broken off links with the increasingly authoritarian Burnham, who divided the country among racial barriers, Jagan was active in the government as a labor activist and leader of the opposition. After 28 years in opposition, he and the PPP won the October 1992 election with about 54% of the vote, and Jagan became President.[4]
    Jagan suffered a heart attack in the morning of February 15, 1997 and was taken to Georgetown Hospital before being flown by U.S. military aircraft[5] to Walter Reed Army Hospital in the U.S. capital, Washington, DC, later that day.[1][5] He underwent heart surgery there and died in Washington on March 6, 1997. Prime Minister Sam Hinds succeeded him as President and declared six days of mourning, describing Jagan as the “greatest son and patriot that has ever walked this land”.[1]
    His presidential tenure was characterized by the revival of the union movement and a re-commitment to education and infrastructure improvement. Towards the end of his life, he abandoned Marxism-Leninism and began to move his country to a free-market capitalist system.
    He married Janet (née Rosenberg), a former member of a communist youth organization, in 1943, and the couple had two children, Nadira and Cheddi Jr. (who in turn produced five grandchildren, Cheddi B. Jagan II, Vrinda Jagan, Avasa Jagan, Alex Brancier, Natasha Brancier). Mrs. Jagan followed her husband’s footsteps and held the positions of prime minister and president in 1997 (succeeded as president by Bharrat Jagdeo in 1999). A museum in the capital, Georgetown, celebrates Cheddi Jagan’s life and work, complete with a replication of his office.
    Jagan was also an important political author and speechwriter, and his publications include Forbidden Freedom: The Story of British Guiana, The West On Trial: My Fight for Guyana’s Freedom, The Caribbean Revolution, and The USA in South America, among others.

    Chodokant – a psychotic, megalomaniac, micro-managing, covetous, divisive, sneaky, spiteful, angry, racist, bigoted, lying, crazy-arsed, cheating fraud. We will be rid of you!

    God bless Fiji.

  25. Budhau Says:

    Fijigirl – Chaudary ain’t the enemy, honey. First figure out who the enemy is – how can you find a solution when you don’t know what the problem is?

    That Cheddi Jagan info – very interesting. The US guys always thought that this Jagan guy was a communist – despite the US being a thorn in his side, I guess this Jagan bugger did OK.

    So you think Chaudary should try for the next PM post of should he go for the President’s job.

  26. Jose Says:

    Go to haryana with budhau leading the exodus of the line of the aliens of little mr and mrs dollies and snakelings to the field of moo moo cows.Paradise there for the cow worshipping lovers.

  27. FijiGirl Says:

    @ Jose – Budhau was with Chodo in Haryana. That’s why he was absent from the blog for weeks. I don’t think Budhau was allowed to Brussels, though, for fear they wouldn’t get him out of the red light district.

    God bless Fiji

  28. Jose Says:

    @ FijiGirl. That could be true or he is chodopuss himself. Check out his posts. notice how he’s swinging it. He is rounding up support for his ideas. Fiji is US Collectively. Well I say never. Ever. Fiji is US, the natives. Aliens live in peace among us. Leave the running of our government to the indegineous.

  29. aubatinuku-N Says:

    Mahendra Chaudhary should just cut a long story short and move his whole entire family for good to Haryana, India. He wouldn’t waste so much money travelling back and forth so much and I am sure his “ancestral village” would love to have his big lying mouth around for good.

  30. FijiGirl Says:

    @ Jose. Agreed, could also be the revolting, rancid son, Rajendra.

    I can’t remember if it was Ratu Cakobau, or Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna who offered the following explanation, “the people and the land are one. We (the chiefs) rule both. We own neither.”

    I believe there is a special, spiritual connection between the Fijian people and our land. Would you say the land ‘belongs’ to us? Or do we belong it the land? Probably the latter is closer to the truth. Era na kilakila ga na kena qele.

    Chodothru$h’$ drive to divorce the land from the people will end in his own destruction.

    @ aubatinuku-N – we live in hope!
    God bless Fiji

  31. Jose Says:

    The first 3 coups I thought was a joke and didn’t take notice. Two of which I was away overseas. This 4th coup is personal. We are landowners and these people are actually going to discuss what needs to be done with our own land and make decisions about it without us? They have some awful cheek This should never have to happen.

    I cannot speak for the people but for myself and how I feel about my land. I feel that I belong to it. And because its mine, it belongs to me. I know that we are only stewards of what we have. Until I die, this land is my birth right It is my God given right. And I will defend it and help others like me defend theirs.

  32. Jose Says:

    @FijiGirl I hope you understand how I feel.

  33. FijiGirl Says:

    @ Jose – Bravo! Well said – we are only stewards. Chodo and his ilk cannot understand this relationship because he is / they are too busy coveting the land. They see it as a commodity, something to be traded, rather than something to be nurtured and protected.

    Chodo wants only to rape our land. Mine and sell its mineral resources (the Chinese exploring for bauxite, God knows what will happen to gold that’s left – sell off to India?). Convert pristine rainforest and savannah to sugar cane plantations (the fastest way to suck all nutrients from the soil and make the land useless for anything else, as other landowners have posted here). Seize FijiWater from its legal owners.

    He has no appreciation for the true global worth of our pristine ecosystems. To quote Oscar Wilde, Chodo knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. He has a medieval approach to land use, thinks the Fijian approach is Stone Age, whereas actually our stewardship of our land and sea resources has resulted in a modern ecological treasure.

    E.O. Wilson sums up actions of humanity, saying “people used every means they could devise to convert the resources of Earth into wealth…. We exist in a bizarre combination of Stone Age emotions, medieval beliefs, and god-like technology.”

    Chodo wants to borrow god-like technology from China and India to turn our land in wealth. He continues blindly in this, his ignorance of the value of our culture and our relationship with our land. He must be stopped.
